Now that things are opening up, a bike ride around Entebbe is enjoyable, not difficult, and Fred is a great guide! The bike was in great shape, easy to ride, and Fred and the staff at the botanical garden and reptile reserve are knowledgeable. I'd recommend!

A totally beautiful, day-filling trip. With good all-round support and good contact. It could only be spent a little more time in the park, which is hardly possible with the great program. All in all a great day!!! Very happy to be back soon!

3h30 are more than enough, the young guide made me discover the outlying districts which is very good. The price of 70 dollars is on the other hand exaggerated!!!
